Dr. Levine and Dr. Fava have been invited to write a book chapter with close friend and colleague, Dr. P.D. Miller from Memphis, Tennessee, on Dr. Miller’s Miller-McEntire Prognosis Usage in Dental Practice. The book, a comprehensive guide to periodontal diagnosis and treatment, will be published in 2019 by another colleague – Dr. Sal Nares, Chair of Periodontology and Implantology at the University of Illinois.

The Miller- McEntire Periodontal Prognosis Index is an evidenced-based scoring index that was designed to help determine the health and longevity of your whole mouth as measured against seven factors such as age and smoking. The index is now able to give a percentage prognosis for 15 years and 30 years based on a number of “Keys for Success” which the patient needs to follow for long-term teeth health.
